What will be discussed?

This webinar will talk about Infobright, LucidDB, MonetDB, Hadoop (Impala) and other column stores

  • I will compare features between major column stores (both open and closed source).
  • Some benchmarks will be used to demonstrate the basic performance characteristics of the open source column stores.

Analyzing air traffic performance with InfoBright and MonetDB

Accidentally me and Baron played with InfoBright (see this week. And following Baron's example I also run the same load against MonetDB. Reading comments to Baron's post I tied to load the same data to LucidDB, but I was not successful in this.

I tried to analyze a bigger dataset and I took public available data about USA domestic flights with information about flight length and delays.

The data is available from 1988 to 2009 in chunks per month, so I downloaded 252 files (for 1988-2008 years) with …

Quick comparison of MyISAM, Infobright, and MonetDB

The queries are generally pretty simple (sums of columns), but they're ad-hoc (can access any columns) and it seems tailor-made for a column-oriented database.

I decided it was time to actually give Infobright a try. They have an open-source community edition, which is crippled but not enough to matter for this test. The "Knowledge Grid" architecture seems ideal for the types of queries the client runs. But hey, why not also try MonetDB, another open-source column-oriented database I've been …
